The Literature of Mountain Climbing in America 

By Allen H. Bext 

The books and magazine articles upon American mountains, 
like the trails thereof, have become so numerous that there is 
perhaps some excuse for a guide to thread their mazes. Mine 
makes no pretention to completeness; it aims simply to give 
a helping hand to those who have started on the upward 
path. In order to keep it within reasonable bounds only 
books and papers that are devoted wholly and in part to actual 
climbing are included. Many articles have strayed into un- 
expected places. For example, oik^ would hardly look for 


information about the White Mountains in a San Francisco 
magazine, or for climbs in the Sierra Nevada in a Honolulu 
monthlj^, or for the Atlirondacks in a Swiss mountaineering 
journal, 3'et all these things have been found and doubtless 
there are many more such that have eluded the compiler's 
eye. "^ 

The beginnings of mountaineering in America have to be 
looked for mainly in early histories and narratives of travel, 
though the first ascent in the Canadian Rockies is chronicled 
in the supplement to a botanical magazine. The first maga- 
zine article upon American mountains seems to be Jeremy 
Belknap's account of the White Mountains, printed in the 
American Magazine in Philadelphia in February, 1788. The 
first book was Joel T. Headley's The Adirondack, published 
in 1849. The Alpine Journal of England, the earliest of such 
magazines, had a short account of a climb in Central America 
in its first volume, 1864, and in the third volume, 1867, there 
was an account of an ascent of Mt. Hood. The first book 
devoted to alpine climbing in America was Clarence King's 
Mountaineering in the Sierra Nevada. 

A'PPALACHIA has published in recent years articles upon 
Early Mountaineers (May, 1913); The Indians and the Moun- 
tains (June, 1915); and The Mountaineering Clubs of America 
(December, 1916). These collectively form a sort of intro- 
duction to the mountains of America; but, as all were written 
by the compiler of this list, perhaps his recommendation is 
not valid. More interesting are John C. Van Dyke's book 
The Moimtain (1916), and the articles on "Famous American 
Mountains," by Henry Gannett, in Everybody's Magazine, 
May, 1902; "Mountaineering in North America," by Robert 
Dunn, in Outing, September, 1907; "The World's Highest 
Altitudes and First Ascents," by Charles E. Fay, in the Na- 
tional Geographic Magazine, June, 1909; and "The Climbed 
and Unclimbed Peaks of the Americas," by Granville For- 
tescue, in the Bulletin of the International Bureau of the Ameri- 
can Republics, June, 1910. Valuable as adjuncts are the 
Dictionary of Altitudes prepared by the U. S. Geological Sur- 
vey in 1906; the booklet upon Equipment, published by the 
Appalachian Mountain Club in 1916; and the maps of the 
U. S. Geological Survey and Forest Service of the United 



States, and the Topographical Survey and the Dominion 
Parks of the Department of Interior of Canada. 

Of first importance perhaps are the journals of our moun- 
taineering clubs, which accordingly we place first in our list. 
Then follows the bibliography of peaks, ranges or regions 
arranged in alphabetical order, the individual titles being so 
far as feasible in chronological sequence.
